Operator cancelled but did not issue the refund
, Sep 2019
I came to the place of the meeting. I called them when the guide did not show up. They said that since I am the only one registered for this tour - the tour has been cancelled. They asked if I can re-schedule for another day. I said I cannot. They promised to process the refund. 2 weeks later - still no refund.
Wonderful Inside Look at Non-tourist Athens
, Jul 2019
Our tour guide, Antigoni Dionisiadou, did a fantastic job of showing us around several modern-day neighborhoods of Athens that showcased the different ways in which modern Athenians live and the various values they espouse. We visited up-scale and working class neighborhoods; educational and merchant areas (including butcher and fruit/veggie markets, flea markets and even a department store with newly-discovered Roman ruins preserved in situ in the current children's department). Antigoni also showed us a World War II detention center run by the Nazis. Along the way, we stopped for a coffee break at a local tavern. Although it was billed as a group tour, the two of us were the only ones who signed up (a great loss to those who didn't take advantage of this opportunity), so we were treated to essentially a private tour. HIghly recommend this tour to get a nuanced view of present-day Athens and its inhabitants.

Hello Dave, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice review for our Urban Neighbourhood Walking Tour. We are excited to hear that you enjoyed walking in 5 different areas of city center and get an insight on how locals live. What a pleasure to hear that you also loved our tour guide Antigoni, who treated you to extra care! Looking forward to see you soon in Athens and join us in another off the beaten path adventure we offer in the city and beyond! Best Regards, Phaedra

Fantastic tour. Really get to see the stuff of the usual tourist beat. Most of the tour has good shade, but the last half hour is sunny. Take a hat.
